Friday–Very Busy


This has been a very busy day today and it’s only early afternoon. Ernie had an appointment with the doggie eye doctor this morning. Mashallah, he is doing really well. The doctor is very pleased with his progress with both eyes. Both eyes are almost normal in tear production, compared to his first visit in October when he had NO tear production in his right eye and very little in his left. The doctor has him continuing his twice a day medications for the next 4 months except for the special med for his right eye (only once a day), and then he’ll see him again. That’s not a problem. We’ve sort of worked ourselves into a routine for the meds, and he is so good about letting me put the drops in. He’s a trooper, that little Ernie!

About 45 minutes before we left for the eye doctor appointment, I received a text from Jackie. She had left her jazz pants at home and needed me to bring them to her at school for practice tonight. So I went to their house after the eye doctor appointment and found her jazz pants, and then rushed over to Business Careers High School and left them at the counselor’s office. I texted her that they were there, and the office staff also contacted her to come and get them. She texted me that she was grateful to have them. I don’t know if Sabrina knows anything about this slight SNAFU, but I’m not going to say anything to her about it. There’s no reason to tell her about it.

Unfortunately, because I had that extra errand to run, I didn’t get to Juma’ because I had to write my résumé and email that and my Professional Goal Statement to the admissions counselor. My MAC has templates for résumés, so I picked a traditional one and filled it out. My Professional Goal Statement was finished, so I emailed both of them to Mr. Ross so he would have them when we talk this afternoon. I probably could have (and should have) done my résumé first thing this morning, but I completely forgot about it. And I had gotten up about 3:45 a.m. I read and took a shower before Fajr, but I totally forgot that I had to write the résumé.

But I doubt I could have gotten it done in the artificial light this morning. Then Jackie texted me about the missing jazz pants. And then we got stuck in traffic on Babcock up by Prue. We just made it to the eye doctor on time, then we just made it to Business Careers by 11 a.m. as I promised Jackie I would. I don’t know when they change classes and she could pick up the pants, but I think it all worked out okay.

Pattie’s exhibit has opened at the Guilderland Library (on January 4), but the official opening is Sunday. Pattie was baking for the opening; she is doing it all herself. I hope all goes well. There is snow predicted for New York again; I hope it doesn’t go as far as Schenectady/Albany and she has a good turn out. She has about 80 paintings in the show; she is having a book printed, too. I asked her to take pictures of the opening. She is going to post them on Facebook.

I was reading my numerology sample report and bought the entire set. The sample was so spot on that it was scary. I am a spiritual seeker and a bit quirky in my body language and outlook. I prefer to be alone than with others, and I can really annoy people with my know-it-all attitude. True, True, True. It really was scary how close it was (the Life Path, the Expression Number, and Soul Urge (Heart’s Desire) were. I shouldn’t have spent the money, but it was so right about me I had to learn more. I had a Chinese numerology done, too, but haven’t read it yet.

I have another terrible migraine this afternoon. I took meds, but I need to take more. It really hurts. I need to just suffer through tomorrow but I have to make it go away before the admissions counselor calls. I still need to get my transcripts, so I have to call and find out how much I need to send the universities to get the transcripts sent. Probably I should call now to find out. I know it has to be done in writing–the request–but I have to call to find out the cost so I can get the requests sent out ASAP. I want to start classes on March 7.

I haven’t heard from Sabrina about the Dr. Phil Show, if she wants to go on or not. I see the issue as prejudice against Muslims, especially Western converts. I watched an episode of the Deen Show this morning and the scholar explained precisely why I converted. It was about what Muslims believe about Jesus. It expressed my views so well.

I still haven’t written my gratitudes for today, I need to do that. I finally fixed my financial spreadsheet (Mint) for this new year. I hope I can keep up with it.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
